Grace Will Triumph
|In most of Western
civilization the spiritual choice of
transcendent living with God is a lost option. Instead mankind
in religion is offered a dumb choice between two UNLEAVENED
levels of interpretative belief. One is ritual and boring, the
other is bizarre.
Christ is a Spiritual Entity to be met, learned from, improved by and lived for. Now, we are inadequate in faith since no one is big enough to contain the infinite love and depth of mind and compassion that is Christ. But through faith one lives in religion like the poor widow of the Gospels lived, contributing her mite to the cause.
Each of us lives the Word as best we can, knowing full well that our best living is only a small part of the fuller expression that is Christ. And we, as bees do carry our spiritual bits to the hives the churches, the churches that ideally should be an example of the Kingdom of God working and at work now.
But to be true, how little the churches of a decadent, materialistic and shallow Western Civilization flame in this period of the liberal fiasco in mind and thought when people reason but they reason not with faith and in faith.
I rest sure in soul that no matter what may happen, grace will ultimately triumph. Nothing can separate us from the love of God. (Romans 8:35) Listen to the Word of God in the World of God.
We are still at the beginning of time with a new God of radiant love. His kindness shall not depart from us. (Isaiah 54:10). He who despairs absolutely, absolutely knows not God.
